reconciling the hormones #48

Dude, I don’t even know what to say …


#meme is a cartoon depiction of a biological woman in your swim suit, walking down a snow filled street; in her slippers, also looking rather stressed and hot – pushing a trolly with a generator and fan on it.

The caption reads: Kathy’s hot flashes were becoming severe.

A most excellent and straight to the point article by Shannon @ Just how I like them ❤

My Only Path to Power

If you’re spending your time arguing that a nurse has the right to get his hands in a woman’s vagina when she doesn’t want them there, you are a rape apologist. If you think she should drop her pants without complaint for any and all who feel qualified to get into them, even if she’s uncomfortable, then you are a rape apologist.

Resisting them is also a way to remember their history, their connections to the institution of slavery, and their real symbolism and its impacts. This conversation not only keeps the dolls out of circulation, it makes us more sensitive to the racist caricature generally. So let’s have it.

At the same time, I cock my head sideways at liberals who love these conversations because of how comfortable they are, considering that we tend to think of the Golliwog doll as a bygone product of a bygone era. Boy does a…

Slightly derogatory … but pretty bloody accurate at the moment 😉


reconciling the hormones #43

Alright, all jokes aside …

This is like one of those rollercoasters (which I have avoided for most of my life!) that just won’t quit!

Guess who found the Menopause jokes 😉


#meme is a cartoon picture of a biological woman ordering a coffee and a cafe. The heading on the counter reads: New! The Menopause Special.

She says to the barista:

I’ll have the cafe mocha vodka xanax latte to go, please.
